Congrats on the new rig! We bought the exact same model in dec but haven't used it til this wknd due to weather. We absolutely live it. We found two quirks with it so far but no big deal.

1- the bathroom door is awkward and would love for a pocket door but not a deal breaker. You have to walk past the bathroom into the bedroom then open the door because of the swing on it. Again not bad but awkward.

2- using the fireplace will heat the downstairs and keep the thermostat satisfied. Therefore the bedroom is a lot cooler because the main heater doesn't kick on. I love it cold in the bedroom but Dw doesn't. So gotta keep her happy.

Overall the shakedown trip went as planned and the crusader treated us well. Look forward to many more trips!

Thank you all.
I love the camper so far. What did I ever do with out self leveling. Lol
Setting it up the first time was a breeze. It is beautiful inside.
One thing I will have to get us to is the bathroom door. It could definitely be a slider. Would be great. And the light under the stove is a little dim. But have an idea to fix that problem. With some stick on strip LEDs. Should give it a lot of light. I am getting almost 4 mpg better fuel economy. That's a big plus.

About the heat issue. If you have not tryed this
Try turning on your fan in the living room while the heat is on and it should pull the heat to the front of the camper easier and it won't just sit in the living room. It will circulate through out the camper well.

Thanks I will give that a try in two weeks when I'm back out again. Speaking if lights I just remembered. Do you have the led light pkg? We do and the two lights over our bed with the blue light. We went to sleep the first night and those things shine that bright blue right in your face. Had to cover those babies up the second night.

Yes. I got the led pkg. Have not been able to try out camping in it yet. But will in a Coue weeks I hope. Just a nice Coue day run to see if I have any quarks. I am going to put some strip LEDs under the vent for the stove. It needs more light when I coon I believe.
